I recently visited Lofoten in Norway and in small village called Myrland there was a building of some sort near the beach. It looked like docks. It was protected by the sea wall that was build from massive stone block held together by massive iron rods. It was and breached in the middle. Here is photo of the wall.enter image description here

My question is what was this structure and what happened to the wall. Thanks

  • Sorry about that this is it.

    Maybe, but the stones in OP's picture are well-worked and regular, and the cabin foundations aren't.
